Birch & Beam


There is nothing more fulfilling to us than handing you the keys and saying, “Welcome Home.”

Home, and its amazing ability to be a sanctuary serves as the foundation and passion behind what we do here at Birch & Beam. As a husband and wife team we view home-building as sacred work, something both intimate and monumental in the lives of our clients.

Our work as custom home builders in Mifflinburg expands throughout Central PA and it is an area we love to serve. We approach each project as a singular piece, building in custom touches that make it your home. Our journey with clients is an ongoing conversation. And if we’re honest, we love connecting with homeowners just as much as creating the home itself. A smooth process coupled with clear communication is the hallmark of our service. We want to make the path to your new home as enjoyable as possible.

Many Americans tend to make purchases with the mindset that everything is disposable. But our craftsmanship is anything but a disposable commodity. Our homes are crafted to last for generations. Likewise, unlike the “big box store” concept that others may bring to the homebuilding process, Birch & Beam is your custom-tailored homebuilder, committed to making everything in your custom home “fit” you and your family.



Delmer & Junita Bender

We love salads fresh from our garden, reading a real page-turner, and touring quaint towns together. But most of all, we feel enormous satisfaction in getting the details right. As parents of three children, we deeply understand the meaning of “home.” It’s the safe place where you prop your feet up after a hard day. It’s a space to gather and make memories. It is where you are your true self. 

That’s why we’re committed to creating hand-crafted homes of heirloom quality. As a true craftsman, Delmer holds a deep passion for his work, puts great care into the artistry, and pays close attention to the fine details. The result is functionality and durability that exceeds anything mass-produced. Throughout every inch of a Birch & Beam home, you can detect the hand of a master craftsman, dedicated to his work and proud of his product. Together, Delmer and Junita bring the best of their individual skill sets to operate a second generation company dedicated to investing in their team, setting themselves apart as an educated contractor in Central PA.

When we partner with clients, they get the very best of us – our whole selves. We couldn’t do it any other way. And you shouldn’t expect anything less. Hearing our clients rave about our work or remark about how stress-free the process is the best compliment. Getting the chance to stand in front of a home and know that we built it…that’s a feeling like no other
